Trivia

Sergio Leone, who produced the movie and was a personal friend/mentor of young Carlo Verdone, suggested him to run around the building three times before filming a scene, as to appear more agitated. Verdone, already tired, decided to only pretend to do so, left the room and returned after a while. Leone slapped Verdone and told him he had checked and was not going to be fooled. Verdone eventually complied and later admitted the little trick helped his performance. See more »

"...in che senso?!"
29 July 2001 | by Il_KoreanoSee all my reviews

Three man (playing by Carlo Verdone) and three different story: Leo is a shy guy, and it's world is only the job, the mother and Ladispoli. But he meet Marisol (Verónica Miriel), and it's way to see the world will begin to change. Enzo is the contrary of Leo. It's a boy much outlandish, tries to attract people with it's outlandish stories. While he is travel for a vacation, a friend of this will be felt badly in it's car. But for Enzo it is all a fact of nervousness. Ruggiero is a boy who lives in a community, and when he come to Rome, it finds again the father. He invites Ruggiero to pass a day between the old ones walls of house. And he meet old faces known in the past. All will find it changed.

A great comedy, with many phrases rendered celebrates from the big actor Verdone. I council this film to who wants to know the comic Carlo Verdone.
